The job was to fix a door that was dragging on the floor from the garage to the house. He came and evaluated and expressed high confidence in being able to fix it, which he did. There was a cabinet door off the hinges in the garage, and he also fixed that. He continued to adjust the hinges until it was fixed to his satisfaction, describing what he is doing along the way. Very personable, and wanted to do the job right!

Pros: Jasper was prompt in responding, punctual, friendly, and completed the work quickly. I was impressed that he finished this project in one day; whereas other contractors seemed to indicate it was more work and more difficult. I would hire him again. Some areas he can improve: There were a couple of minor areas that were knicked on our kitchen island that I didn't notice until cleaning up. Also, I think he could have done a little better cleaning up the island- wiping down the cabinet fronts that had a light layer of dust (I did this myself). Finally, I gave him a box of stain & top coat that the previous owners left to us. He applied them but I noticed they didn't leave the counter shiny, like the finish we had before he sanded. After Jasper left, my husband realized we were missing the water sealant coat which we had in the garage. So now we are applying this coat ourselves to make the island water- proof and give it the same shine. This isn't totally Jasper's fault since I gave him the supplies but I would have liked if he would have noted that something seemed to be missing or off (or given his recommendations on what he would have stained/sealed it with to make sure the wood stayed water proof.) Overall, I'm happy with the work.

We had a two-sided sink installed in our garage. This involved running copper hot and cold water pipes, running a drain to existing pipes, and mounting the sink to a concrete wall. Also ask to caulk/seal all sinks, toilets and bathtubs in the house. Gerardo was very professional and did a great job.

Juan did a great job repairing the exterior stairs of my house. The stairway had extensive rot, and Juan replaced the stringers, treads, and upper landing (just short of a full replacement), and got it done in a day. He was great to work with, provided expert advice, and added additional bracing, giving the stairway a very solid feel. I will definitely keep him in mind for future projects.

Scorpion Services provided me and my family with an amazing Trex deck. The upper deck covers a large portion of our lower deck which has made this winter season enjoyable outside. I definitely recommend Scorpion Services to anyone who is remodeling/building a deck or add on to their home.

Andrew is the REAL DEAL, folks. Partnering with him to build a custom loft was so much more fun and fulfilling than I’d anticipated. I was putting out feelers looking for someone to construct (in my mind) a pretty simple thing... yet he seems to understand his job is more than building “things”. He’s helping you build your home – and he wants it to be a reflection of who you are. Throughout the process, Andrew was collaborative, thoughtful, thorough, curious, and fun. Money well spent.

I had a great experience working with Eddie building a 250 SF deck in my backyard. I can't say enough positive things about him. His bid was very competitive yet workmanship was of the highest quality, he managed to be very responsive despite handling other jobs and he demonstrated deep expertise in his craft. I would hire him again in a heart beat and would recommend him to my friends. He finished the project on budget, on time and lets and left the job area clean after he finished.

For start, they are very prompt with everything and Sam is very responsive. He definitely gets the work done and keeps his word. My company was very limited with a deadline to get our building revamped asap and Refresh and Build complete their promises immediately. Sam was very helpful with answering many questions we had and the workers are so quick that they got the work done within 1 week and a half. Best company to reach out to because they are very quick with their work and the room looks great!

Aldo saved us thousands of dollars! We’ve been battling a mystery leak in my garage on rainy days. Multiple contractors told us it’s our roof and that I’d need to spend the $$$$$ replace it and then wait for the rain to return to confirm the problem was fixed. While we agree that the roof needs to be replaced soon, we were skeptical about having it done immediately. Then Aldo responded to our Thumbnail req. Aldo’s approach was totally different- he suggested a more scientific approach, starting with a thermal camera and a scoping camera. By using both of those devices, he proposed the leak was originating in a window not the roof. After a 15 minute water test he verified his hypothesis with relative certainty. Days after installing a new window the rains returned but the leak didn’t! With the problem solved, Aldo turned immediately to the finishing work- moldings, trims, drywall etc. –the results are beautiful. Having worked with contractors in the past, I know that smaller jobs can linger for long periods, and communication with contractors can be frustrating. It is absolutely NOT the case with Aldo. He’s responsive, transparent (i.e. provided options and the corresponding impact to the original quote), and never out of touch. He sets realistic and reasonable expectations. More importantly, he shows up as promised. We're excited to have him work on a few more projects in the near term. Thank you, Aldo!

Miguel did an awesome job fixing an old "skeleton only" garage to building one that is stronger, roomier and lot more functional than just a plain-old-garage. I would recommend Miguel for other jobs and use his services again for my own projects.

Sebastian did a range of projects across my condo, from building to painting. You can tell that he really enjoys the work -- thinking through each new idea as a challenge to be solved, and he's not daunted by ideas that seem complicated or setbacks along the way. He coordinated with a range of other vendors to bring in all of the parts, and referred me to high-quality providers whose work I now enjoy having in my home. He's done such amazing work that it was a no-brainer to bring him in for another project on my new place. You can tell that he's incredibly honest and really goes far beyond to make you happy. I've recommended him to several friends already.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is a general contractor?

When starting a home remodel or new construction project, you will probably hire a general contractor. A general contractor is a professional who is qualified to take a set of building plans and construct them as outlined. The general contractor may help perform the day-to-day building, or they may just hire workers and oversee all the work activities. In either case, the job of the general contractor is to see that your project gets built.

When you have a building project, ask for bids from various contractors. The bids tell you how much each will charge and what their scope of work will be. Once you have selected a bid, you sign a contract with that general contractor outlining the specifics of the project and the milestones during the project when they will receive payment installments. Once the contract is official, the general contractor will bring in their crew to begin construction. The contractor will manage the workers and subcontractors (anyone who doesn’t work directly for their company but that they need to outsource, like a marble installation pro), order all the materials, obtain work permits, and confirm that all the workers and subcontractors are completing their projects as planned. They typically handle all the payments to the workers and subcontractors, and send you invoice. For all these reasons, it’s also especially important to follow a few smart hiring practices when it comes to finding a general contractor.  If you are organized and competent to oversee construction projects, and are able to make sure everything is being built properly and meeting code, it’s possible you can be your own general contractor.  

How do you choose a commercial general contractor?

A commercial contractor provides similar services as a residential general contractor but specializes in working with large-scale projects for businesses, schools, nonprofits, governments and development firms. When researching commercial general contractors, review their portfolio of work and confirm they have ample experience working in the area you need. For example, if you are building a small strip mall, ask if the contractors have experience successfully incorporating all the needed elements such as a parking lot, meeting ADA requirements, accessing the proper permits, and completing work on time.

Once you’ve identified several qualified candidates, request bids for your project and then compare the scope of work with your needs and budget. Your commercial general contractor should oversee design, permitting, construction, materials purchase, and adherence to building code and zoning regulations, as well as sticking to an agreed-upon budget and schedule. It’s important to establish clear communication with your future commercial general contractor, as this will mean a smoother process for everyone. For all these reasons, it’s also especially important to follow a few smart hiring practices when it comes to finding a general contractor.

What do general contractors charge?

If you’re doing a home remodel, building a new home or embarking on a commercial building project, you’ll hire a general contractor. A general contractor is a professional who is qualified to oversee and execute construction projects. Each construction project is unique; even two duplicate homes built on lots next door to each other could have different construction costs due to factors like different excavation costs when building the foundation. Since each project is unique, many general contractors make bids on potential construction projects. These bids can then break down to a per square foot cost that encompasses the labor of all the workers needed for the job, materials, the scope of work, and any equipment needed. Materials and finishes make a major difference in your cost per square foot. For example, choosing standard kitchen tiles at $3 per square foot will result in a lower total project cost than imported marble tiles that cost $63 per square foot. Where you live will also affect how much general contractors charge, as labor and the cost to do business can cost less in many regions than in high-cost areas like New York or San Francisco. Here are some examples of average costs general contractors typically charge in various regions:

  • Home addition in San Francisco: $250-$270 per square foot.
  • New home construction in Knoxville, Tennessee: $100-$200 per square foot.
  • Kitchen remodel in Tennessee: $40-$80 per square foot, depending on finishes.
  • Bathroom remodel in Vancouver, Washington: $110-$170 per square foot.
